A distended deceit takes over,
you become the fear –
under a distorted moon, tangled,
unscripted. The damp nails
on the skin of light
Ruins stand on broken skulls
praising the icy death
bringing the race on brink.
Killer smile shatters the wholeness
of imagination. Letters drop from memory.
Words uneven, meanings disappear.
the needle to stitch the history.
